Providing a remarkable collection of 15 I/O channels in a low-cost, compact package, the device is suitable for teachers, technicians and hobbyist. Its software delivers an easy-to-use oscilloscope with a bandwidth of 100 kHz and a datalogger that provides an additional input and output capabilities.
The USB DrDAQ features a light sensor, microphone, RGB LED, four digital I/O ports, oscilloscope, three sensor ports, a pH/redox sensor input and a signal generator output. Its innovative design eliminates the need for an external power supply. As a single channel oscilloscope, this eight-bit 100 kHz device can deliver a sample rate of 1MSa/s.
Its 10-bit D/A output provide a standard 10-bit signal generator including an arbitrary waveform generator which enables users to customize the waveforms created. Its RGB LED features also allow users to display various colors for indicator purposes. Two of the device’s I/O ports can be utilized as pulse counting inputs or pulse-width modulation (PWM) outputs. The device’s sensor ports are compatible with a vast array of humidity, temperature and oxygen sensors, including custom built sensors.
The device can be used in various applications, from research to education for audio frequency signals and beyond. Featuring a free Windows Software Development Kit (SDK), the USB DrDAQ offers fully documented function calls that control every aspect of the device, which can be integrated into programs such as C, C++, National Instruments LabVIEW and Microsoft Excel.
